24 weeks!

It's 24 weeks! I'm on my way to 25 and about to be on our way to the beach!

I am really looking forward to getting to go before I get any bigger. What a wonderful way to start the summer. Below is my progress in the BUMP (or bumps!)

We still don't have names for the babies yet! Baby A and Baby B... What will you be?

Yesterday we had another level 2 Ultra Sound to check on things. Each baby does have an issue of worry, but there really is nothing we can do about it right now, so we are just hoping for the best.
Baby A has something going on with his cord and Baby B still had the excess fluid / thickened nuchal fold - but everything else seems good.
Both hearts look very good, as well as kidneys. All stomach and head measurements are perfect and they each weight 1 lb 11oz already!
Their heartbeats are only 3 beats off with Baby A being 146 and Baby B being at 143.
Right now both babies are still breech!
I am wondering if because of Baby A's cord issue and the fact that they are breech, if a C-section is just a given in my future?

As long as they both arrive safe, I will be happy!

Baby A is quite the kicker, his feet are down touching my bladder, so needless to say, I have to GO a lot!
Baby B is heads up again, facing Baby A, I think they enjoy being breech and playing footsie with one another! Baby B is more quiet and his movements are more like slow turning instead of quick kicks.
It's so amazing to be able to feel TWO different little people.

We have published a few registries, we didn't want to at first as these are baby number 3 & 4 for us, but with it being twins and two boys (when we have an ALL pink household) we figured people may want to know what we need. Our Registry List

Right now our biggest concern is getting two infant car seats and a stroller to snap them into, as well as cribs.
We have been lucky enough to get s good start on baby items through friends and garage sales!
I can't even begin to explain how AWESOME the Mother's of Twins Club sale was. I can not WAIT to go back in September if I'm feeling up to it.

For my last day of work, I was given a surprise shower with a sweet little cake and a planter with gift cards attached. It was beautiful. We will be using the gift cards to get some of the items we need and hopefully saving some for a stroller / car seat system in the future!

Items we have so far are:
Pack n Play (travel crib type thing)
Baby Bathtub
Two vibrating/ rocking seat type things (from my co worker - many thanks!)
Two johnny jump ups (matching! from a sweet friend found at a garage sale)
1 swing (Like new! -we hope to get another one at a garage sale as well)
A good start on clothes (Now that we know gender, the Twin Sale will be so much more helpful as we can stock up on onesies and clothing for cheap!)
Blankets (we have a decent stock form the girls that were yellow and or green and can be used for Boys.
CLOTHES! - We were given a few bags of clothes from a mom who recently had twin boys. We really only need some onesies and sleeper type things to finish up, OR winter clothes in 3-6 month size

Things we are still looking for, or going to need to buy (garage sales, or buying new):
Baby Monitor (we will probably buy this with a gift card)
Crib bedding- We are still undecided!
Mattresses for the cribs
Cribs - ($99 dollar cribs from Ikea) CRIB LINK
Infant Car Seats (on registry, they have to be compatible with the stroller for "snap in")
Double Stroller travel system
4oz Playtex nursers & Bottle Liners (we are sticking with the Playtex Drop in systems we used with our girls, Target brand liners do fit these as well)
Breast Pump - not sure which brand!
Bibs (that are not Pink and say things like "Shopping Diva, or Mommy's little princess" on them. Ha ha)
Clothing that is NOT summer, in 3-6 months (Hopefully, fall clothes will be out soon)

Hopefully we have a wonderful beach trip and the babies enjoy Momma getting a little relaxation!!
